    Yugo AK-47?

    I have seen these on line recently and got to handle one the other day. I did not get to fire it, it was in a shop. It had the underfolder stock on it and I was pretty impressed. So, do any of you guys own these? How do you like them?

    Are you sure it was an SKS?

    Underfolder stocks have never been used on these rifles.

    Of course you are right!:banghead: I said SKS instead of AK-47. I have changed it.:D Do you have one and how does it work?

    Yugo AKs are good, solid, inexpensive AK. Generally a better buy compared to a WASR since you won't have to fix canted sights or replace FCGs. That said, I really like my WASR but I'd be just as happy with a Yugo.

    Yugo AKs are a very good choice.

    I've built a few from kits and while they're ugly and some have worn barrels, they all shoot just fine at "business distance".

    I would get the Yugo SKS instead. But seriously, I've heard that pretty much all the yugos are good. I have the yugo SKS and love it.

    I own both a Yugo AK and SKS, the latter is very accurate – both have been very reliable. I can recommend them.
